The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 

Department of Law, 
Chicago, January 3, 1938. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Our attention has been called to an 
apparent ambiguity in the recent amendment passed 
to the driveways ordinance, which amendment ap- 
pears on page 5013 of tlie council journal of Decem- 
ber 22, 1937. It is our understanding that it was the 
intention of the City Council to charge an annual 
permit fee of $10.00 for driveways aggregating sixteen 
feet in width or less, and where a driveway or drive- 
ways aggregate greater width at a single business 
location an additional fee of $1.00 annually should be 
charged for each additional sixteen feet or fraction 
thereof of all driveway space maintained or used. 
To effectuate this intention and remove the uncer- 
tainty now existing we have drafted the attached form 
of amendment which is herewith submitted for the 
consideration of your honorable body.

Chicago, January 3, 1938. ( 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In connection with the change from 
the Journal of Commerce to the Times as the official 
newspaper for the publication of city notices, our at- 
tention was called to section 3143-M of the Revised 
Chicago Code of 1931, as amended, which section pre- 
scribes that notice of applications for retail liquor 
dealer's licenses shall be published for at least three 
consecutive days. This has caused some confusion 
when a change of official newspapers was ordered by 
the council. Publications on December 30, 31 and 
January 3 were affected. Inasmuch as the State Li- 
quor Control Law does not require the publication of 
any notice before the issuance of a retail license, it 
would seem to us that a single notice should suffice. 
We have, therefore, prepared and we transmit here- 
with draft form of ordinance amending the section by

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, Under the rules and regulations of the 
Works Progress Administration (Illinois) governing 
the operation of work relief projects, it appears that 
they cannot supply all of the skilled labor required 
to properly prosecute the work; and 

Whereas, The Works Progress Administration 
(Illinois) has suggested that the City of Chicago, as 
sponsor of these work relief projects, supply such 
additional skilled labor (in addition to that proposed 
to be supplied by the City of Chicago) and in the 
quantities when, and as necessary; and 

Whereas, The Works Progress Administration 
(Illinois) has proposed to offset the cost to the City 
of Chicago of this additional employment by the pur- 
chase by it of materials (otherwise intended to be 
purchased by the City of Chicago) in an amount so 
that the cost will equal the cost of the additional 
skilled labor employed by the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, It is deemed that this proposal will not 
disturb the total costs to the Works Progress Ad- 
ministration (Illinois) and the City of Chicago, of 
these work relief projects, nor the ratio of expendi- 
tures, one to the other; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago desires to cooperate 
with the Federal Government and enter into such 
arrangement whereby it is thought it, the Works 
Progress Administration (Illinois) will be enabled 
to employ 15,000 additional relief clients on work 
relief projects, and thus relieve to this extent the 
acute local relief situation; now, therefore 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. The Commissioner of Public Works 
and the Commissioner of Streets and Electricity are 
hereby authorized and directed to obligate the City 
of Chicago to employ additional skilled labor when 
and as necessary to properly prosecute work relief 
projects during the year 1938, as authorized in the 
annual appropriation ordinance relating to vehicle 
tax funds, if the Works Progress Administration 
(Illinois) purchases and delivers additional asphaltic 
mixtures and materials (otherwise intended to be 
purchased by the City of Chicago" in a total cost to 
the Works Progress Administration equalling the 
amount in cost to the City of such additional employ- 
ment of skilled labor. 

Section 2. The total of such expenditures from 
this appropriation shall not exceed Seven Hundred 
and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($750,000.00). 

Section 3. This ordinance shall take effect and be 
in force from and after its passage.

January 12, 1938 



Whereas, The Board of Education of the City of 

Chicago appropriated $700,000 in their budget for the 

year of 1938 for the purpose of building a school for 

crippled children on the North and Northwest Side 

■ of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, There has been a crying need for this 
school for many years, and Pediatricians, Orthopedic 
Surgeons and others who are interested in the care 
and well-being of these unfortunate children, have 
worked unceasingly to accomplish this purpose; and 

Whereas, At the present time children are forced 
to leave their homes as early as six o'clock in the 
morning to enable them to reach their schools at 
9:00 A. M. for the commencement of classes; and 

Whereas, This has caused a great deal of anxiety 
to the parents as well as great discomfort to the chil- 
dren; and 

Whereas, No location has been selected, nor have 
any plans been drawn for the proposed school; and 

Whereas, Certain recommendations have been 
made by the Executive Committee of the Chicago 
Orthopedic Society and a Committee appointed to 
perfect plans; and . . ■,... 

Whereas, These recommendations are the result of 
a long study by those qualified to make such plans; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago memorialize the Board of Education to expedite 
the selection of a site; that plans be drawn immedi- 
ately following as closely as possible the recommen- 
dation of aforesaid Committee, and consideration be 
given to extending the grades through high school; 
and be it further 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago do hereby commend the President and members 
of the Board of Education for the action that they 
have taken to alleviate the sufferings of these in- 
capacitated children, as well as to provide a school 
which is sorely needed. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on said 
resolution without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Keenan moved to adopt the resolution.

at the corner of Sheridan road and Morse avenue in 
the City of Chicago, by a public taxicab owned by the 
Radio Cab Company of Evanston, Illinois; and 

Whereas, These so-called five-cent cabs such as 
Radio and others are operating in the City of Chicago 
without license or permit from said City of Chicago; 
and 

Whereas, These Evanston taxicabs are said to be 
old cabs from other companies, repainted and put into 
this cheap service at reduced rates, and do not comply 



with the regulations of the City of Chicago as to safety 
inspection and taxicab regulations; that therefore 
be it 

Resolved by the City Council, That the Commis- 
sioner of Police be and is hereby instructed to order 
the Police Department to stop these cabs from oper- 
ating in the City of Chicago and to cause the arrest of 
drivers for soliciting and picking up passengers in 
the City of Chicago; and that be it further

quiring these cabs to meet the requirements of the

the streets of Chicago.

ice classes who are employed on a per diem basis

ous vacation allowance was computed, or since

a vacation of not to exceed two calendar weeks 
and not in excess of eleven (11) work days during 
said two calendar weeks at the rate of pay and

ular working time equals one year of service 
since the date as of which the latest previous 
vacation allowance was computed, shall be 
granted two weeks vacation as provided in Sec- 
tion 1. In case the combined time equals less

clude Sundays, holidays or the whole or a portion

the employe in making the application for such leave 
shall be shown to the department head by such rea- 
sonable evidence as he may require, either by a phy-

continued sickness of the employe warrants such 
course; and, be it further

operation of this order the officers and employes of 
the Board of Education, the Chicago Public Library,

Alderman Moran presented an ordinance allowing a 
variation from the requirements of the zoning ordinance

cil there appears the following rule in Section 28,

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 12, 1938 



Whereas, the board of appeals having fully heard 
the testimony and arguments of the parties and 
being fully advised in the premises, finds that the 
proposed use will be so conducted that the appro- 
priate use of neighboring property will not be in- 
jured thereby; that the proposed addition is to be 
part of such establishment and that the applicant 
should be granted relief on the ground of practical 
difficulties and unnecessary hardship in the way 
of carrying out the strict letter of the zoning ordi- 
nance on condition that all permits necessary for 
the erection of the proposed addition and the es- 
tablishment of the proposed use shall be obtained 
within six months and all work involved shall be 
completed within twelve months after the passage 
of an ordinance by the City Council; that there 
shall be no operation of the plant involving 
processes of a nature such as to disturb the occu- 
pants of the commercial district during the hours 
of 8 P. M. and 6 A. M.; that all other ordinances 
of the city of Chicago shall be complied with and 
that plans in triplicate shall be approved by the 
board of appeals before a permit is issued herein; 
and 

Whereas, the board further finds that the prem- 
ises are located in a commercial district adjacent 
to a manufacturing district; that there is practical 
difficulty and unnecessary hardship in this case 
and that the variation may be made consistently 
in harmony with the intent and purpose of the zon- 
ing regulations and would not be detrimental to 
the public welfare, safety or health,

the authority conferred upon it does hereby recom-

ments for the purposes above set forth. 

No liability shall at any time be incurred in excess of the available

nances. 

The full amount of all contracts and requisitions shall be carried as 
an incumbrance against this stock account except the amount of the 
requisitions only shall be carried where such requisitions are made 
against contracts calling for deliveries from time to time. 

Material and supplies returned to stock shall be covered by a credit 
memorandum in favor of the account originally charged, which 
credit shall be deducted from the total of subsequent warrants for

proper fund and charging this stock account for the amount thereof. 

No material and supplies may be withdrawn from the stores of this 
stock account except upon the receipt of a regularly approved order

suspense stock accounts, or appropriation accounts set up for the 
purpose of constructing, operating or maintaining the City's street 
lighting system, the "Stop and Go" traffic signal system, and the 
police and fire alarm telegraph systems. All such orders for the 
withdrawal of stock shall be handled in such manner as may from 
time to time be specified by the City Comptroller.

lection within thirty days after the delivery of material and sup- 
plies, chargeable against accounts designated on the order or requi- 
sition covering such deliveries. All material and supplies shall be 
billed on such warrants for collection at the cost price, plus one per 
cent to cover cost of breakage and loss. Freight and demurrage, if 
any, shall be added to cost price. 

All expense incidental to the operation of this stock account shall be 
paid out of appropriations otherwise made for the Bureau of Elec- 
tricity, subject to the limitations of such appropriations, except for 
the purchase of material and supplies as herein outlined, and for 
the payment of freight and demurrage costs which shall be charsred 
to this stock account.

.\uthori7a(ion and Dircclion to Turn Over the Polish 

Boat "DAL" (o the Chicago Park District for 

Exhibition Purposes. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the fol- 
lowing communication: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, January 17, 1938.| 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — During our recent Century of Prog- 
ress, two intrepid young Polish navigators honored 
Chicago by making our city the terminal point on a 
voyage from Poland in the "Dal" — one of the small- 
est boats ever to cross the Atlantic ocean. 

To memoi'ialize this liistoric and adventurous voy- 
age, the public-spirited Polish people of Chicago 
raised funds and purchased the boat, the intention be- 
ing to turn it over to the Chicago Park District for 
preseiwation and permanent exhibition in a suitable 
place. The boat is now stored at Navy Pier. 

I therefore suggest that the City Council take for- 
mal action at once to turn over the boat to the park 
district so that the vessel may be properly exhibited 
as intended. 

Very truly yours,

Re: Chicago, Illinois 
East 103rd Street Viaduct 



Dear Sir — This refers to your letter of December 
29, 1937 transmitting a resolution requesting an ex- 
tension of time for completion of the above project. 

In this connection, we are quoting below instruc- 
tions we have just received from our Central Office, 
as follows : 

'■We acknowledge receipt of your request of 
December 31, 1937 that approval be given to an 
extension of time from January 11. 1938 to August 
13, 1938 for the completion of the project, as de- 
sired by the City. Before we can take action on 
this request, we shall need to have some further 
information from you. 

''We would appreciate your letting us have an 
adequate, detailed statement which will explain 
why it is considered necessary to take until August 
13. 1938 to complete a relatively small amount of 
painting and paving, which no doubt can start as 
soon as suitable weather appears next spring. It 
is reasonable to assume that this work be completed 
much earlier if it were handled skillfully and ex- 
peditiously." 

We urge that you give serious consideration to 
supplying us with a very detailed statement which 
can be transmitted to the Central Office in an effort 
to obtain the extension of time which you request. 
It is apparent that no extension of time will be 
granted unless tlie reasons therefor can be fully 
justified. 

Please give this matter your immediate altontinn. 

Very truly yours.

Chicago Relief Administr^vtion,) 
Chicago, January 18, 1938. j 

Honorable Edivard ,f. Kelly, Mayor, City of Chicago, 
and Members of the City Council: 

Gentlemen — In accordance with the requirements 
of an ordinance passed by the City Council July 1, 
1936, there is attached hereto a report of receipts and 
expenditures; a report of commitments showing the 
various classifications of relief and expenses; and a 
report of applications received, applications rejected, 
and applicants receiving relief for the months of Oc- 



January 31, 1938 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



5313 



tober, November, and December, 1937, contained in 
the following exhibits: 

Exhibit I shows the amount received, the sources 
from which these funds were received, and the 
amount of obligations incurred. During the month 
of October, the only funds available were those re- 
ceived from the State. This amount was sufficient 
to meet only 65 per cent of the estimated require- 
ments for the month of October. Funds for the 
months of November and December made available 
by action of the City Council in its meeting of Octo- 
ber 18, 1937, were supplemented by funds received 
'from the State of Illinois and were sufficient to meet 
84 per cent of the estimated requirements for Novem- 
ber and 82 per cent of the December estimated re- 
quirements. 

Exhibit II shows the various classifications for re- 
lief and expenses, as well as salary obligations, for 
which commitments were made during the period 
covered by this report. 

Exhibit III shows that relief was granted to 84,619 
applicants in October which is approximately the 
same as the number granted relief in September. 
The number of applicants granted relief in November 
changed only slightly from the number granted re- 
lief in October. During the month of December, 
however, there was an increase of 7,394 in the num- 
ber of applicants granted relief over the month of 
November. The seasonal trend for this period of the 
year normally is upward, but there was no increase 
for either October or November. The sharp increase 
in the month of December is attributed mainly to 
the recent business recession While the recession 
began in the montli of September, it did not mate- 
rially affect the relief load until December. 



Respectfully submitted.

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

An Ordinance 

For Appropriating Funds to Defray the Cost of 
Equipment Used by the Board of Local Improve- 
ments in the Construction of Motor Fuel Tax 
Projects. 

Where.as, During the past year the Board of Local 
Improvements has had under construction an exten- 
sive program of roadway widening and pavement 
construction, for the defraying of the cost of which 
sundry appropriations have heretofore been made 
from the City"s allotment of motor fuel tax funds; 
and 

Whereas, The construction of these improvements 
has entailed the necessity for the purchase of addi- 
tional surveying instruments, testing apparatus, sun- 
dry supplies, etc., for the proper conduct of the work 
under State and Government regulations; and 

Whereas, The Board of Local Improvements, 
through negotiations with the Federal Administration 
of Public Works, secured a grant of money approxi- 
mating 45 per cent of the cost of the said improve- 
ments, thereby resulting in a very substantial saving 
of the funds originally allotted from motor fuel tax 
monies for the cost of the said work; and 

Where-as, a considerable portion of the funds so 
saved will be available for other purposes; and 

Where.\s, Under the circumstances, since these 
expenditures are for general use and not properly 
chargeable to any one project, it appears to be rea- 
sonable to request that the cost of these supplies and 
equipment be defrayed from the unexpended portion 
of motor fuel tax funds; therefore
